Holding out for a hero
In our youth we often fixated on different super heroes that would swoop in and save the day. We delighted in their powers and fantasized about teaming up with our hero and making the world a better place. These fantasies brought so much light into our childhood experiences. But at some point, we let the heroes go and focused more on the real world surrounding us. Let us take some time to reflect on a hero. This could be someone we admire, a celebrity, or maybe you will revisit a childhood hero. Take their image into your mind's eye and imagine them healing the struggles you currently face in your life. Maybe they pay your bills by discovering a mine full of gold, perhaps they heal your cancer cell by cell with their universal life force, or maybe they protect your children from baddies. It is ok to meditate on these things. It may seem silly, but that childlike mindset can wash worries away. Who is your hero?
